Product Description

Built on the foundation of the original Mountain Masters, Five Ten has created the Camp Four to go one step above the old duties and become a do-it-all approach/ multi-sport shoe that gives you a solid grip on the roughest terrain. A highlighted feature of the 'Camp Four' is its unique heel with intergral rubber support, which allows enough flex for tough heels strikes yet stability on uneven lateral terrain. Perfect for exploring the boulder scene around base camp, ideal for peak bagging or finding new ways to enter your 4th story apartment!


+ Molded PU external heel cage adds rear-foot support and stability, allowing you to move heavy loads for long distances without the need for a high-top boot.

+ Co-molded Stealth C4/S1 high-friction soles provide the world’s best friction on any terrain.

+ Lace to toe design tightens for climbing and can be worn loose for the approach.

+ Integrated internal shank adds stability and structure to your step.


+ Weight per pair: 2 lb. 1 oz.

+ Upper: Nubuck Leather

+ Midsole: Compression molded EVA

+ Outsole: Co-molded Stealth C4 and S1 with internal shank

+ Color:gray/lemongrass

So far so good
I have these and have used them on three 14K ft peaks with seemingly endless talus approaches and 3rd class climbing. They've worked out very well so far. My only problems I've had are because I got them a half size too small.

As good as the reviews
I bought a pair of Camp 4s prior to a long road trip, which included lots of climbing and some hiking. They did a great job on a hike up Mt. Rose (near Lake Tahoe) as a replacement for light boots and managed to stand up to abuse in the Buttermilks, Vedauwoo, and the Ozarks. I even managed to do some impromptu bouldering (V0) in them. They're excellent for scrambling and easy rock climbing.

They are pretty waterproof right out of the box and show few signs of wear despite a fair amount of abuse. The rubber is quite sticky but is very durable. It can be tough to get the heel fit just right, but the lacing system gives you enough leverage to get them on right if you don't mind a little extra fiddling.

Great shoe!
The Camp Fours are a great pair of shoes! I've used them for long hikes, scrambling, climbing moderate rock routes, and everything in between. They seem to provide better support than my old Five Ten Prodigy, and have definitely held up to more abuse. I normally wear between a size 9.5 and 10, so I inititially purchased a size 10. This allowed a bit too much slop when climbing or traversing steep terrain, so I went with the size 9.5 and it has been a perfect fit.

These shoes rule! Very comfy, great support, excellent traction and very durable. No break-in time needed, perfect right out of the box. Recommended with enthusiasm.

almost too sticky
watch out, especially going downhill on steep slabs -- you may do a face plant when they don't let go.

So far so good; supportive on most loose scree. Heels seem a bit klunky for edging.

Like many 5.10s, the toe box may seem a little tight compared to the heel width. I used a shoe stretcher, and now they feel fine.

Update: 2012-- on my second pair now. Wore the others till the soles were flat.
